WbemErrorEnum enumeration (wbemdisp.h)

The WbemErrorEnum constants define the errors that may be returned by Scripting API for WMI calls.

The WMI scripting type library Wbemdisp.tlb defines these constants. Visual Basic applications can access this library; script languages must use the value of the constant directly, unless they use the Windows Script Host (WSH) XML file format. For more information, see Using the WMI Scripting Type Library.

Other languages may have different names for these values, see WMI Error Constants and WBEMSTATUS.

Constants

 
wbemNoErr
The call was successful.
wbemErrFailed
The call failed.
wbemErrNotFound
The object could not be found.
wbemErrAccessDenied
The current user does not have permission to perform the action.
wbemErrProviderFailure
The provider has failed at some time other than during initialization.
wbemErrTypeMismatch
A type mismatch occurred.
wbemErrOutOfMemory
There was not enough memory for the operation.
wbemErrInvalidContext
The
SWbemNamedValue object is not valid.
wbemErrInvalidParameter
One of the parameters to the call is not correct.
wbemErrNotAvailable
The resource, typically a remote server, is not currently available.
wbemErrCriticalError
An internal, critical, and unexpected error occurred. Report this error to Microsoft Technical
Support.
wbemErrInvalidStream
One or more network packets were corrupted during a remote session.
wbemErrNotSupported
The feature or operation is not supported.
wbemErrInvalidSuperclass
The parent class specified is not valid.
wbemErrInvalidNamespace
The namespace specified could not be found.
wbemErrInvalidObject
The specified instance is not valid.
wbemErrInvalidClass
The specified class is not valid.
wbemErrProviderNotFound
A provider referenced in the schema does not have a corresponding registration.
wbemErrInvalidProviderRegistration
A provider referenced in the schema has an incorrect or incomplete registration. This error may be caused by
a missing pragma namespace command in the MOF file used to
register the provider, resulting in the provider being registered in the wrong WMI namespace. This error may also
be caused by a corrupt repository, which may be fixed by deleting it and recompiling the MOF files.
wbemErrProviderLoadFailure
COM cannot locate a provider referenced in the schema. This error may be caused by any of the following:

The provider is using a WMI DLL that does not match the .lib fileused when the provider was built.

The provider's DLL or any of the DLLs on which it depends is corrupt.

The provider failed to export
DllRegisterServer.

An in-process provider was not registered using /regsvr32.

An out-of-process provider was not registered
using /regserver.
wbemErrInitializationFailure
A component, such as a provider, failed to initialize for internal reasons.
wbemErrTransportFailure
A networking error occurred, preventing normal operation.
wbemErrInvalidOperation
The requested operation is not valid. This error usually applies to invalid attempts to delete classes or
properties.
wbemErrInvalidQuery
The requested operation is not valid. This error usually applies to invalid attempts to delete classes or
properties.
wbemErrInvalidQueryType
The requested query language is not supported.
wbemErrAlreadyExists
In a put operation, the wbemChangeFlagCreateOnly flag was specified, but the
instance already exists.
wbemErrOverrideNotAllowed
It is not possible to perform the add operation on this qualifier because the owning object does not permit
overrides.
wbemErrPropagatedQualifier
The user attempted to delete a qualifier that was not owned. The qualifier was inherited from a parent
class.
wbemErrPropagatedProperty
The user attempted to delete a property that was not owned. The property was inherited from a parent
class.
wbemErrUnexpected
The client made an unexpected and illegal sequence of calls, such as calling
EndEnumeration before calling
BeginEnumeration.
wbemErrIllegalOperation
The user requested an illegal operation, such as spawning a class from an instance.
wbemErrCannotBeKey
There was an illegal attempt to specify a key qualifier on a property that cannot be a key. The keys are
specified in the class definition for an object, and cannot be altered on a per-instance basis.
wbemErrIncompleteClass
The current object is not a valid class definition. Either it is incomplete, or it has not been registered
with WMI using SWbemObject.Put_.

The syntax of an input parameter is incorrect for the applicable data structure. For example, when a CIM
datetime structure does not have the correct format when passed to
SWbemDateTime.SetFileTime.
wbemErrNondecoratedObject
Reserved for future use.
wbemErrReadOnly
The property that you are attempting to modify is read-only.
wbemErrProviderNotCapable
The provider cannot perform the requested operation. This would include a query that is too complex,
retrieving an instance, creating or updating a class, deleting a class, or enumerating a class.

An attempt was made to make a change that would invalidate a subclass.
wbemErrClassHasInstances
An attempt has been made to delete or modify a class that has instances.
wbemErrQueryNotImplemented

The CIM type specified for a property is not valid.
wbemErrInvalidPropertyType
The CIM type specified for a property is not valid.
wbemErrValueOutOfRange
The request was made with an out-of-range value, or is incompatible with the type.

wbemErrPropagatedMethod
An attempt was made to reuse an existing method name from a parent class, and the signatures did not
match.
wbemErrUnsupportedParameter
One or more parameter values, such as a query text, is too complex or unsupported. WMI is therefore

The provider does not support the requested put operation.
wbemErrUnknownObjectType
An object with an incorrect type or version was encountered during marshaling.
wbemErrUnknownPacketType
A packet with an incorrect type or version was encountered during marshaling.
wbemErrMarshalVersionMismatch

wbemErrUninterpretableProviderQuery
An event provider registration query
(__EventProviderRegistration) did not
specify the classes for which events were provided.
wbemErrBackupRestoreWinmgmtRunning
An request was made to back up or restore the repository while WMI was using it.
wbemErrQueueOverflow
